Should I put my 2 lovebirds in separate cages?
Posted 01 December 2012 - 04:08 AM
I'm taking in 2 love birds tomorrow, they are 4 months old and as far as I know have been together (don't know if in the same cage or not) for most of their lives.
Is it better to put keep them in two separate cages? They are both tame and handled regularly.

I am wondering what your concerns are... Are you concerned they will lose their "hand tameness" or are you concerned about aggression (or both).

At one time the "school of thought" was that parrots would lose their hand-tameness when caged together. This is not true at all. As long as we interact with our birds on a regular basis they maintain their social skills with humans... There is some issue if they decide to nest - they become more protective of their "turf" at that stage. But that's about it...
I am concerned about them becoming aggressive towards me, I want them to stay tame

The issue of breeding may never arise... Or it may and you will have to decide, at that time, what to do about it...
